1969 was the first year for the Cougar convertible. A Mustang drop-top may be more desirable, but this could be a more affordable way into essentially the same car, albeit with more luxury. The Cougar was always the more luxurious of the two and the XR-7 model was even more so. This convertible is fitted with the base 351, so nothing special there. There is rust and it has needs, but with a $5k starting bid and no reserve here on eBay, it might just go for a fair price. Take a closer look and let us know what you think. Thanks goes to John K. for the submission.
